NAS – Lastly, we have Nasir Jones, a rap icon in the music industry and now he is making a name in the film industry as he holds the title of executive producer for his first film THE LAND.


IFC Films’ THE LAND opens in New York & Los Angeles on July 29th with a national rollout to follow

Available on VOD/iTunes on August 4th


Executive producer Nas presents this vivid inner-city saga set amidst Cleveland’s hip-hop underground. Teenage buddies Cisco (Jorge Lendeborg Jr.), Junior (Moises Arias), Boobie (Ezri Walker), and Patty Cake (Rafi Gavron) shrug off school to practice skateboarding, which they hope will be their ticket to a better life. In the meantime, they steal cars to finance their dream. But when they get mixed up in a drug deal and cross a ruthless crime queen-pin (Linda Emond), they put their friendship–and lives– on the line. Set to a choice hip-hop soundtrack and featuring an impressive ensemble cast that includes The Wire’s Michael K. Williams, Erykah Badu, and rapper Machine Gun Kelly, THE LAND crackles with the energy and poetry of the streets.
